Come experience a free play reading of “The Burdens” a comedy by Matt Schatz, directed by Avi Hoffman on Aug. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at GableStage. Free admission and no reserved seats, early arrival is encouraged.
This dark, family comedy focuses on how technology helps us stay close, while still enabling us to keep our distance. Mordy is a struggling musician living in Los Angeles. His older sister Jane is a successful attorney in New Jersey. When their centenarian grandfather makes their widowed mother’s life miserable, the siblings hatch an elaborate plot to relieve their mother’s burden and their own. The play is told almost entirely via text messages to demonstrate that sometimes texting is easier than saying something face to face but be careful of auto-correct, though. It can be murder.
